Jefferson Bible Myth

Unbelievers like to site the "Jefferson Bible" as some sort of evidence that the founding fathers of our country were not Christians. Don't let them fool you, this nation most certainly was founded on Christian principles, by Christian men. Sadly, we may be moving farther and farther away from that now, but now they're attempting to rewrite history.

This particular "Bible" is in the archives of the Smithsonian.
Dr Catherine Millard was allowed to copy the title page and table of contents written by Thomas Jefferson himself.  Here's what it says:

"The life and morals of Jesus of Nazareth, extracted textually from the four Gospels in English, French, Latin and Greek."

It's a harmony on the teaching of Christ, not some kind of "changed Bible" because of he didn't believe all of it. 

He was not a deist, and neither was George Washington - too much evidence in their writings disproves it.  They were both Protestant Christians.
